For everyone who still hasn’t had enough after a day full of movement, the Tanzfest at the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm is the ideal opportunity to end the day. It is the crowning event of the Tanztag Rhein-Main. Everyone is invited to the Mousonturm’s big hall to enjoy the diversity of dance; every half hour, styles switch. The program includes Lindy Hop, historical dances, circle dances from the balkan region, Bollywood and many more. After short introductions by experts, everyone can dance as they wish in a circle, as a chain or alone from one dance style to the next.

DJ Leila Moon (22.30 P.m.-0.30 A.M.)
Leila Moon, composer and musician of the Tanzfestival-Rhein-Main-Produktion "Dansöz", combines biographically and musically different cultures. Growing up with Raï, she mixes this influence with Gnawa, Afro-Beat, Indian and Arabic music, be it funk, disco, house or hip-hop. In the rhythmic pulse of these different genres lies the great musical and historical commonality. With her DJ set she gives the starting signal for the closing party of the Tanzfestival Rhein-Main in the Café Mousonturm. https://soundcloud.com/leila_moon
